WoW Classic Rogue Starter Build and Leveling Guide

Using a weakaura to ensure u don’t miss any would be ideal. Should only be used leveling on high HP mobs that are expected to live a long time. This guide has been written by Nemo, an experienced Raid Leader from multiple top North American guilds.

When you log out, make sure you do so at an inn or rested area.

I will say though that questing in BC is easier than in pre-BC. The quest descriptions are better and the objectives are easier to find in general. Questing will be a really good way to level after the rush dies down from the initial release.
